About this project
Why do we drink coffee? In Caffeinated, filmmakers Hanh Nguyen and Vishal Solanki discover the triumph of coffee as a beverage and the role it plays as a social lubricant in the United States. Coffee is one of the highest selling commodities in the United States. It has become so much a part of our daily lives, that we cannot start a day without the perfect cup.
Featuring over 100 interviews from long time coffee connoisseurs and entrepreneurs such as Andrew Lindemann(Global Green Bean Director, Starbucks),Doug Welsh( Master Roaster at Peet’s Coffee and Tea), espresso guru David Schomer(President of Vivace, Seattle), Matt Launsbury CEO of Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Geoff Watts(Green Bean Buyer-Intelligentsia) and Counter Culture’s Peter Giuliano along with other World Barista Champions and coffee lovers, Caffeinated reveals surprising insights on everything that happens from the bean to the cup. As these visionaries raise the bar to create some of the best coffees in the world, we educate the nation to change its perception towards coffee as a mere dose of caffeine and accepting it as a special beverage, looked similarly as vine in taste, aroma and complexity. Addiction aside, we show the role played by these visionaries in elevating the standards of coffee thereby changing lives of farmers in some of the poorest parts of the world.
Caffeinated is a celebration of coffee, a must watch for every coffee lover.
FAMOUS QUOTES USED IN CAFFEINATED:
I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all.
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
-T. S. Eliot
If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.
It is surely easier to confess a murder over a cup of coffee than in front of a jury.
